The Great Streets Initiative is under way! The Initiative is a culmination of many years of planning, including the public vote in 2014 to use the CIty's downtown TIF disrict to make new investments in the downtown's public infrastructure. The November presentation highlighted the Main Street corridor and City Hall Park. The Main Street concept plans focus on improvements to the public right-of-way, including sidewalks, street trees, stormwater, lighting, and bike facilities. The design work for City Hall Park will advance concept plans that emerged from the 2012 Imagine City Hall Park process.
Comments on the public presentation on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 will be taken until December 9th. Visit the website www.GreatStreetsBTV.com for more information, to view the presentation that was taped by Channel 17, slideshow from the presentation, and leave comments or feedback.
DRIVEWAY ENCROACHMENT PARKING PROHIBITION
The Driveway Encroachment Prohibition was adopted by the Public Works Commission on September 21st 2016 and will take effect on October 19th 2016. This prohibition will make it a ticket-able offense to park within two feet of all driveways in Burlington. A blocked or encroached driveway often makes it difficult or impossible to either enter or exit, inhibits access to homes, or traps residents on their property. This prohibition was sought by the Department of Public Works in response to numerous repeated complaints from the public. This is a perennial issue that will not be assuaged without this new prohibition. Click here for more info.
It is our goal that everyone living, working or attending school in Burlington will learn to utilize on-street parking efficiently without adversely affecting others.
